No, you cannot remove the internal pad plugin from ePSXe. It is built in and is none removable. Also Adripsx does not support the rumble feature, yet, which ePSXe does. But there is a pad driver that works perfectly well. I'm using it w/Adripsx and my PSX controller and it works fine. Unfortuneately, right now I am using my mother-in-laws computer (we are here for a visit) so I can't check what it is. But, this evening I will check which one I am using and I will post it for you. I can also send it to you, via E-Mail, if you'd like. That should help w/your control problems. Take care.
